Overview

Getting up close and personal, Absolute Pleasure finds Detroit's Electric Six bringing their anything goes party rock into the live setting, and thriving in the process. While the band's studio records are always a good time, an album like this makes for a kind of double "best-of," with the band ripping through some of their greatest hits in the most optimal conditions possible. In front of a live and willing audience, Dick Valentine feeds off of the crowd's energy, converting sweat into the kind of pure rock & roll ridiculousness that makes the Electric Six an instant party. Featuring killer tracks like "Down at McDonnelzzz" and "Body Shot," as well as early career mega jams like "Gay Bar," "Dance Commander," and "I Buy the Drugs," this is an album of career-spanning crowd pleasers that show the band at their hyper-indulgent best. For longtime fans of the band, Absolute Pleasure is the mixtape that they've always wanted, collecting fan favorites and delivering them with enough vigor that they feel fresh. For the uninitiated looking to get a taste of the Electric Six's special brand of irreverent rock, this live album makes for the next best intro point into the band's prolific career outside of their debut, Fire. Whatever your level of fandom, if you turn up the volume, turn down your inhibitions, and get ready for things to get a little weird, you're bound to have a good time.
